FINAL REPORT HRADEC KRÁLOVÉ The congress, exhibition and social centre ALDIS FINAL REPORT 936 visitors 73 lectures 71 companies mounting presentations Organised by: Held by: DISTRICT HEATING AND ENERGY DAYS 2014 THEIR SUBJECT AND SUBSTANCE? The most important conference in the field in the Czech Republic this year, attended by representatives of partner associations from Germany and Slovakia. The conference, held under the auspices of the Association for District Heating of the Czech Republic, also presented a number of news and innovations and covered additional fields associated with district heating. The conference was conceived as a specialist forum for representatives of heating plants, technology companies, local authorities, housing co-ops and owner associations. The range of lecturers appearing at the event reflected the composition of those attending the event. Leading experts from ministries, associations, trade universities and partner companies made their speeches and there was also an accompanying exhibition a presentation of products from companies that already supply products in this area or that have something to offer for the future. The individual blocks of lectures were devoted to state and European Commission policy towards heating plants and the impact of the current legislation, not to mention issues affecting municipal and local authorities in the area of heat supplies and the upcoming law on waste, says Martin Hájek, Director of the Association for District Heating of the Czech Republic. STATISTICS Number of visitors 936 Number of companies mounting presentations (exhibitors and partners) 71 Number of lectures 73 NUMBER OF VISITORS NUMBER OF COMPANIES MOUNTING PRESENTATIONS WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT THE CONFERENCE The Association for District Heating of the Czech Republic, Ing. Mirek Topolánek, Chairman of the Executive Board We have a new organiser this year, and I think we can be satisfied with the result. The standard of the event has improved considerably in comparison with recent years. ČEZ Teplárenská, a.s., Vladimír Gult, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Managing Director Excellent, excellent. I think there has been a shift forward and that it is better than last year. It has been action-packed and there are more people here. These conferences are interesting and beneficial. I also think the attendance has been decent, so I am satisfied. The Association for District Heating of the Czech Republic, Pavel Kaufmann, Press Spokesman It s a good thing that the event has come back to Hradec Králové to a place we know so well. Aldis may not have changed, but the exhibition has been conceived differently. Those taking part in the conference appreciate the fact that they can choose between interesting lectures in various sections and move from one lecture hall to another. This new concept is probably an improvement, evidence of which is the level of interest seen from those taking part. The number of people attending certainly won t be lower than at previous years of the event. ČEZ a.s., Jan Šmolík, an auditor focusing on production processes in power engineering and district heating I have to agree with my colleague I am also enthusiastic. I have enjoyed some of the lectures here and I think it is a good thing that education of this kind is engaged among people engaged in the field of district heating. Tenza, a.s., Ing. Stanislav Kraml, Head of the Research and Development Department Many interesting discussions, that s the main thing. Which lecture did I enjoy the most? All of them, I would have to name all the lectures I have attended. Josef Uchytil, Uchytil s.r.o. This is an environment familiar to me. It is something of a festival for us where we all meet up every year and get the opportunity to share our news and new activities. Teplárna Písek, a.s., Ing. Milan Říha, Company Director I like this event. It is held in a good atmosphere, there are a lot of companies here including both suppliers and purchasers of heat. It s a useful event where people can share their experience and information, so I would definitely give it an extremely positive assessment. It is certainly beneficial to the field of district heating. Technoprojekt, a.s., Petr Uherek, power engineering specialist Extremely interesting. It goes without saying that such gatherings are beneficial for those of us in the energy sector. We have just attended an extremely interesting lecture on incineration plants, with a comparison of the situation in Germany and this country and how things should be integrated within the EU. So I am certainly happy to be here today and I am looking forward to the next lecture, which I am in a hurry to get to, so thank you.

THE PRINCIPAL CONCLUSIONS OF THE DISTRICT HEATING AND ENERGY DAYS, HRADEC KRÁLOVÉ, The following points were made as conclusions to the lectures and discussions at the District Heating and Energy Days The Association for District Heating will continue to work on these conclusions and assert them during talks with the government and other organisations. 1. The tabular section of the version of the amendment to the State Energy Concept of September last year, which is still being assessed in relation to its influence on the environment, counts on a massive replacement of domestic brown coal with natural gas in the production of heat for heat supply systems after Owners of district heating companies, however, give a clear preference to the continued use of brown coal which should be assured by the state on a preferential basis for highly efficient combined heat and electricity production. We support the production of an update at planned deadlines, i.e. by the end of this year, with consideration given to recent developments in the EU and in Germany in particular. 2. The Association for District Heating of the Czech Republic is monitoring the efforts on the part of the government to increase the charge made on extracted minerals. This change should be made in such a way as to avoid any further increase to prices of fuel for heating plants and any worsening of their position on the heating market. 3. The government should devote the greatest possible attention to the updating of energy legislation, particularly the energy and mining act, the act on supported sources of energy and other legislation, with the aim of assuring greater stability in the business environment. 4. We consider the shaping of waste legislation, including a waste management plan for the Czech Republic respecting the use of waste for energy as one tool for the more efficient use of waste that also contributes to a reduction to the demand for primary sources of energy such as brown coal, an important area. 5. In the area of the practical regulation of the price of heat, we are demanding simplification of the overall regulatory framework in the mid-term and determination of a regulatory period to make it possible to predict profitability by means of the regulatory prescribed modernisation of heat production plants and thermal energy storage systems. Consideration of the approach taken to the system of regulation in district heating over the long term. 6. We consider it extremely important to implement guidelines on energy efficiency in such a way as to minimise the cost to entities in the Czech Republic, for a cost effective solution to be selected on the basis of an impact analysis and the evaluation of externalities, and that preference is not given to politically popular measures that have no real effect. To implement such guidelines, it is necessary to ensure corresponding provisions in EU structural funds (including the modernisation of heat distribution systems) and to assure the evaluation and monitoring of energy savings made. 7. Revenue from the auction of licences should be directed, first and foremost, at branches that are included in the EU ETS emission trading system and that are forced to increase efficiency and reduce the emission parameters of their technology. We consider legislative changes in this respect and avoiding increasing discrimination between technologies to be essential. 8. We demand that the Czech government promotes the specifics of the Czech district heating industry in the EU during talks on the preparation of legislation defining the technical requirements for the best available technology (BREF), during the preparation of guidelines for medium-sized sources of pollution, during the definition of conditions of public support, and during the preparation of further EU regulations that have a significant effect on Czech entities. 9. We consider completion of the notification of systems of support in the area of district heating by the end of June 2014 essential so as to avoid any further delay in the process resulting from new rules of public support coming into effect from 1 July For further talks on the climate and energy goals of the EU to the year 2030, we demand the adoption of no more than one goal in the area of CO2 emission reductions, and that no further goal for the proportion of renewable sources of energy in the energy mix and no energy efficiency goal is introduced. All emitters must be included in the emission reduction mechanism, ideally by means of the introduction of a carbon tax, not least because only around 40 % of emissions are currently included in the EU ETS emissions trading system. We consider this system non-functional and fear that continual reforms merely deepen the crisis around it and put off any fundamental solution to the fulfilment of its basic goal. SOCIAL EVENTS We organised excursions to the following places for those interested as part of the accompanying programme: The small hydroelectric plant Hučák Built at the Hučák dam on the River Elbe in the years Since 1925, it has been fitted with three single-stage high-speed Francis turbines, each with an output of 270 kw. Opatovice power station A coal-fired cogeneration power station which, in addition to electricity, also supplies heat to a number of towns including Hradec Králové and Pardubice. It was built in and burns brown coal from the Most area, with an annual consumption of around 1.9 million tons. Desulphurisation has been operational since SOCIAL EVENING The social evening put the finishing touches to the event as a whole, with an excellent programme, setting and premises at the Tereziánský Dvůr Hotel and the participation of a number of personalities from the field of district heating and from public and political life. It proved a distinguished place for informal discussions between all the 348 people attending the event. The titles Project of the Year in Heat and Cold Supply Systems were awarded at the social evening, as has become traditional. The awards, in the form of crystal glass chimneys, were presented to the winners by Mirek Topolánek, Chairman of the Executive Board of the Association for District Heating. An untraditional performance by the group TIMBRE MUSIC in the form of a selection of the greatest hits from various periods of time, accompanied by dancers in period costume, provided a welcome addition to the wonderful atmosphere. The social evening met with an extremely positive reaction.
